The protection of sensitive customer information is a vital responsibility for companies of all sizes. In modern times, there is a significant need for not only protecting the data that is being shared but also gaining knowledge of its leakage points and the circumstances under which it is compromised. After locating the location where data is being lost, it is necessary to identify the person responsible for the breach. When it comes to protecting a company from suffering significant financial damage because of data leakage throughout the course of normal business operations, it is very essential to have a solid understanding of the individuals who are responsible for leaking the data. This study tries to discover how small firms might be assisted in protecting the sensitive information that they own. This study's objective is to determine how sites of companies react to attacks that are damaging to their operations so that appropriate action may be taken.
